Roasted Szechwan Pepper Salt

I found this little gem in the China Moon Cookbook. This is the Chinese version of our American salt and pepper. It's an all purpose seasoning and a little goes a long way. It's good for marinating meats and poultry, and a delightful final seasoning for soups and salads. Try a bit tossed into some just made popcorn or sprinkled on a grilled burger! For people watching their salt intake, this is a wonderful kitchen gift! Be sure to use kosher salt, as this gives the flavor. If you can't get kosher, then use sea salt.
